Should make for an excellent building material.


Petrified Trees are a variant of Trees found in Don't Starve Together. They yield Rocks, Flint and Nitre when mined with a Pickaxe, and therefore are alternatives to Boulders to obtain these resources.

Petrification process happens to all stages of Evergreens, and each Petrified Tree will yield resources based on its size. A default world can start with them in the place of boulders or some of the evergreens in the world will get petrified after a random amount of time. In Don't Starve Together the first petrification takes place between the 43rd and 65th day, the following ones take place every 21 to 32 days.

When petrification starts, the Characters will note a noise coming from the trees nearby, right after, all the trees around will become petrified.

After petrification, trees can no longer be chopped down with an Axe, but can be mined with a Pickaxe instead. Petrified Trees do not grow, so they will stay in the same stage of growth when they had been transformed.

The following table displays the drops from all sizes of Petrified Evergreens.

Placeholder.png Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Petrified Trees are considered to be part of A New Reign, even though they were introduced before the official start of the beta branch.
  • In real life, petrification of trees occurs when a tree gets submerged in mineral-rich water. As the tree rots away, the minerals are left behind still in a tree shape. The original wood does not become stone, rather, it is replaced.
  • Trees make a faint rock crunching sound as they petrify.
  • If the player(s) aren't careful, wood may become very scarce or even go extinct due to this mechanic.
    • However, due to the Regrowth mechanic, trees will be able to come back from being extinct. Still, it will take at least 50 days for trees to come back, thus making it ideal that the player(s) keep a few pinecones around for emergencies.
